Is it possible to set up wine in ubuntu? I have set up ubuntu using wubi for a triple boot system 98SE, 2000 pro, and ubuntu. There are a few windoze programs I would like to run, most notably Pegasus Mail.

If not wine, is there another utility I can use to run windoze programs in Ubuntu? Thank you for any help.

Do:


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine

And if your Linux computer isn't connected to the net (as mine is not) use NoNetDebs to download the correct files to install WINE. NNDs will provide you with instructions to install the software.

Good luck!
